An ageing population and technological advancements are key factors threatening the sustainability of the NHS. To combat these challenges Public Health England has drawn up a list of seven priorities that, if tackled, can significantly improve the population's physical and mental health over the next decade, thereby reducing the pressure on the health service. This article outlines those seven priorities and what nurses can do to help deliver them on an individual, community and national level.
